About My Creative Scoop and Mindy Baxter
Do you love to Coloring and Card Making, paper crafting etc.?
YEAH? Well, I'm so excited you stumbled upon my little crafty blog. I have so much to share with you!!!
Not too long ago, well -- about 10 years, I was your bored stay at home mom looking for something to do.
Then, I discovered this awesome hobby, Coloring and Card Making within this paper crafting community and COPICS! I watched hours and hours of YouTube videos until I finally broke down and bought my first set of Copic Sketch Markers. It was love at first touch. LOL!
I didn't have a lot of money to invest in these bad boys so I practiced with what I had, slowly building my collection and figuring out how to use them.
I started applying and being accepted to stamp company's design teams! It was such a great feeling to have a company oh and ah about your work – all from the unique way my cards stood out! Copic Markers, baby!
I would color and color for hours and hours and post my cards, enter challenges. So many card-makers would email me about colors I used and questions about my coloring and card making. I wrote tutorials for companies and even a few magazines/books. I realized I LOVED to teach what I LOVED.. Coloring with Copic Markers.
I was a shy stay at home mom for 12 years and never really socialized much. Then I started teaching at local scrapbook stores, came out with some online Copic Classes, I even taught a class in Puerto Rico! That feeling of putting a marker in someone’s hand and seeing how proud they were of what they just created was priceless!
I've also worked with many different stamp companies and manufactures over the years. You can check out my Crafting Resume to see which ones!

So, you want to know a little about the girl behind the marker?
I'm Mindy! I was born and raised in Southern California. I was a stay at home mom for 15 years before I went out and got a part time job waitressing which turned into 2 part time jobs waitressing. I was never home. So I decided to take some online marketing classes and learn how to make a full time income with my hobby.
My husband is a Sales Engineer for a surveillance company. We met when I was 15 years old. We have now been together for 24 years and April 10th, 2021 sporadically just picked up and ran to Vegas and got married and it was absolutely PERFECT! We often go on trips to Vegas -- it's where I can disconnect from online and where him and I can re-connect without the kids and just focus on each other.
We have 3 kids, Ralphy who is 22, our middle child, Belle, is almost 19, Katie is my youngest, she's now 14 and going on 25! When I was pregnant with Katie I was at friends house and saw a Stampin' Up! catalog and decided I was going to make my birth announcements. Shortly after that I discovered a whole new world *que Aladdin* of the stamping community. I started trying out for design teams and really just fell in love with Copic Markers and Coloring.
